Track Name: Slap Down
Slap Down

No I wont let, it be consumed
my voice will ring out until it fills this room.
I wont even try to fit in
my differences will equal there own personal gain.
It's just another case of the old
unsettled by the mist whilst blinded by the smoke.
fear will dissipate into the air
while the people stop to listen they will stop to stare.

Paying like its a religion
We're all sinners and we've seen this all before.
Just another voice blended into the crowd.
Another voice that you can just, choose to ignore.

So you loose your voice, I don't dare.
The more the scene and I am gonna take you there.
Its just another beat from the norm.
A flawed out mess another sinners conquest well,
the last time I put on a face
I got the feeling for a memory I try to erase
that's all I seem to know
just another man with a flawed out ego.

No I wont leave them guessing
some have got their reasons
some will fight for blessing
some times its just about a god
comment taken now display it while your heads nod
perfect your voice and put out a name
your feet upon the ground is something you will sustain
the water falling of your back so cold
gets brought up to the boil until it overflows

Paying like its a religion
We're all sinners and we've seen this all before.
Just another voice blended into the crowd.
Another voice that you can just, choose to ignore.

So you loose your voice, because I don't dare.
well the more the scene and I we're gonna take you there.
Its just another beat off from the norm.
another flawed out mess, the common sinners conquest
has got us thinking about the time that it takes to be timeless.

Track Name: The Collective
The Collective

So we're told to settle
and that the early birds revel
that punk and heavy metal are the tools of the devil
you stopped listening to people in suits
when they blurred out all the lines between the fables and the truth

Its time for me now focusing on my perspective
to stand corrected by the smiles and speeches that are serving the protected while Cameron's chins are coming for our pensions
a fire breathing media will chase his expenses
with Targaryen intentions

and there's too many reasons to even mention
why we're even compelled to smash the music in the first place
and sweat it out on stage on a regular basis
the fish of the finance bubble
scuttering through the rubble
keeping ourselves out of trouble
there is an eclectic infusion between bliss and confusion
now its time for us to shatter the illusion.

Its about time we go start ourselves
a little collective
and together we will take back
some of that soul
that's been rejected

we stand collected in our music collective

So traverse your troubles rack up a phat line of doubles
let the bitter sweet beat get your feet in a muddle
the systems up the plan is to construct
rhymes to rhythms to bass lines
time to get our knees up
and its a shame that a 40 hour week makes life feel bleak
forget about the terror they seek
love this life as a common man
and feast from the palms of the bankers hands
spend our summers unemployed
smashing up the sun and breaking the beat into noise
we are the Lopez, this is our sound
fighting through the rhythm all the way into your town
billy singing about the cynical situation
leaving us thinking where the fist world funds are coming from
you give what you get in this life there's no regretting
you cast out the net that your soul is setting

Its about time we go start ourselves
a little collective
and together we will take back
some of that soul
that's been rejected

we stand collected in our music collective

Track Name: To The Notion
To The Notion

So when my efforts seem tireless
take some time to digress
emancipate the steady progress to the death
its clear, for me to forget normality
to sorcer conjure plunder up originality
Rasta Rasputin Russian weed wielding maniac
the tidal wave of ska
the type that's giving your face a slap
to the groove and the message that can soothe
so forget the news its miss construed

So come with me
step to the notion
come and live this loving life of commotion
while stepping to the notion

It might take me a minute it might take me some time
to fish a little bit into the back of my mind
I've got the reels and these have got the bait
dangling the sound we create
they tell me its just music
its all about control and i cant abuse it
well I wont, but we will hit the stage and mate
we will go mental

step to the notion
come and live this loving life of commotion
while stepping to the notion

Its too easy for us to forget
just how much we love it
and talent no one just deserves it
because talent is a myth mate everybody's got it
from pen to hand to paper
its all about the time that you are willing to wager
so forget about being a money maker
time is all you are gonna need.

step to the notion
come and live this loving life of commotion
while stepping to the notion
